Out of the seven orders sent to the wholesale houses he re ceived one box of oranges, the whole sale price of which was "out of sight." Lemons and other fruits are also high.

DesDite the fact that a large .SiXlmber of Bourbon county boys now "have registration cards, or, in the -words of the ministrel, "License to hunt the Hun," there is still a large number who have taken out licenses to hunt birds and rabbits. .. Last year the price of shells doubl ed what it was the year before, and this year the boxes have gone to $1.50,, -which would seem to be one Treason for selling fewer licenses. Another Would be that so many boys and now in the army, at home and abroad, but there have been a great many very young boys who applied for license "this year with the permis sion of their parents or guardian, but some of tbqm will be disappoint ed if the health ban is lifted and they have to go back to school before November 15. Hunters say there are a great many quail and rabbits in the .county, and with almost every other form of amusement closed it is very probable that there will be a great many more applicants for license in the days be fore the fifteenth. So far no large huntine narties have been planned or announced and no .extended hunting! trips have been outlined. i last s One of the Victrola Records that Evan Williams was des tined to make!
